Dionysia Adamopoulou

”In my art, I explore the ephemeral and dream-like qualities of motherhood, aiming to capture fleeting moments that seem eternally memorable yet swiftly fade. My work embodies this theme, freezing each transformative experience of maternal life as vivid dreams. My creative process is fueled by the belief, as expressed in my quote, "Motherhood: a journey where each moment is a dream too vivid to forget, yet too swiftly replaced by the next. It's my quest to make every stage indelible in memory, capturing the ephemeral beauty of now."

Using primarily acrylic paints and incorporating diverse materials to enhance texture and depth, my bold and expressive brushstrokes evoke strong emotions and invite introspection. I believe in art as a powerful medium for authenticity, vulnerability, and connection.“

The centerpiece of the artwork is a young child, eyes sparkling with mischief and wonder, donned in a green, slightly oversized frog costume. The choice of this costume is symbolic, echoing themes of transformation and growth, much like a frog’s journey from tadpole to adult. It represents the child's current phase of rapid development and discovery, juxtaposed against the slow, lazy days of summer.
